The plain English of the matter was that
Tregarthen had fallen in lore, though only
in an experimental fashion. Ha was not
yet beyond all chance nobody erer was, as
the result of a (ingle interview but a long
ing was upon him to see mors of the woman
who had so much interested him, and he
walked Into bondage with his eyes open.
Even thus early he guessed what was tho
matter with him.
" I must know more of her," he said. "A
man must be a poor creature who allows
himself to go down before a pair of expres
sive eyes before hs can guess whether there
is a soul behind them or not."
I The young man set forth deliberately in
quest of Miss Farmer's soul with intent to
examine and appraise it H found the
'slightest difficulty in obtaining a second in
troduction to the lady, and it was managed to
Itook accidental and unsought Gorbay was
not a big place, nor had it many people of
importance among its boundaries. The im
portance of people is not determined, to
themselves, by the estimation in which they
are held by others, and the inhabitants of
Oorbay were as much interested in their
own affairs as if they had all been dukes
and duchesses a provision of nature with
out whose operation things would be ex
trcmelvdull for most of us. When Tre
garthen, whose seclusion had been a good
deal talked about, began to make visits to
me mam land, and to cultivate the small
eentry of the town, the unfavorable onin-
Jons which had been formed of him melted
and disappeared. The Tregarthens had al-
ways been so far above the professional pe
r9 ana the sir.au, retired capitalists of Uor
Sbay, that the condescension displayed by
this latest scion of the house was the more
remarkable and the more valued.
There were people who could tell him all
about Miss Fanner's simple and uneventful
history. He learned that she was the daugh
ter of the Vicar, and except for the time
she had spent at school, and a terra of eigh
teen months passed in London, was brcdin
Oorbay. She passed there as being le&vaed
beyond the rights of woman, bat tha' was
the only fsult that anybody found with
her. The Vicar, nearly three years ago,
about the time when Tregarthen had been
awaiting his commission, had departed this
life, leaving two daughters very ill pro
vided for. Miss Farmer had thereupon
gone to London, and had there made a liv
ing for herself and her younger sister, it
was believed, by writing for the magazines.
Certain poems and stories bearing her name
had reached even to Gorbay, and there was
a general belief there that in the outer world
she was famous. But an uncle in the
North the Farmers were northern people,
it appeared had died two years later than
his brother, the Vicar, and had left to Miss
Farmer funded moneys to the value of some
five hundred a year. On this she kept house
in modest and elegant comfort, and the re
turn of the elder girl had been welcomed
by all who knew her. The younger had
teen put to school during her sister's ab
sence, and was now finishing her education
There is not much out of the common in
this narrative to anybody who docs not
happen to be in love with Miss Farmer, or
strongly inclined that way. But to Tre
garthen the story seemed one of heroism
and sorrow, and he thought he could see al
ready some of those inward qualities of
which he desired to assure himself. The
daughter of a clergyman is conventionally
a gentlewoman, and be was already per
suaded that Miss Farmer possessed all de
sirable womanly qualities when he met her
for the second time. They had talked com
monplaces at their first meeting and had
teen aware of the fact They talked com
monplaces now and did not know it, because
they spoke of books and art, and nobody
lieves that he or she can talk common
places upon those inspiring themes. Miss
eV'armer's soul declared itself more and more
freely to Tregarthen's attentive observation,
and he was more and more convinced that
it was of the right quality and pattern.
The young man had taken apartments for
the rest of the summer season at "The
George," and Oorbay knew by this time in
what pursuit he was engaged. Mr. Tre
garthen rambled much in the pleasant fields
tyod the town, and Miss Farmer, who
had a taste for botany and some little
knowledge of the science, was indefatigable
in exercise. The two young people met on
most aays, ana tlie little sister was old
enough to play propriety, and which was
perhaps of some imfortance-was old
enough to know when she was not wanted.
Any wandering butterfly was reason enough
or a .xe which at least took this sensible

looking up at him" I spoke them."
"Did you! "he asked with some confu
sion. All this seemed to have been said and
done aforetime, and to have led to some
unhappiness which now again threatened
from the near future. Everybody has ex
perienced that curious sensation.
" V bat was your dream! "
"Oh, my dream, " he answered. "It was
nothing. I dreamed I was at the play and
I saw Rosalind upon the stag."
She looked up at him swiftly, with a hint
of fear and half a hint of resolution in her
face. He struck out with a transparent
pretense of being perfectly at his ease, and
cut down a nettle with hi walking-cane.
" Your voice reminded me." he said, after
a little pause, "of the most beautiful voice
I had ever heard till then. I even taoueht
I recognized it, and I walked down to meet
you, and found that I had made a blunder."
" In meeting me!" she asked.
He laughed again and their eyes met.
In hers there was a tender triumph and
gayety which answered her own question
fairly well, even without the aid of his,
which beamed with admiration.
"No," he answered, "but in dreaming
that that lovely voice had ever sounded
from the stage." He went on more at ease.
" And yet the fancy haunted me all day."
She was looking on the ground once more,
and with tho point of her parasol was turn
ing a little pebble over and over. She
stooped so that her face was hidden from
him by the wide-brimmed summer hat she
wore. If this were coquetry, the fashion
of the day favored it, for at the drooping
edge of the width of plaited straw was a
fringe of fine black lace some two or three
inches deep, and he would have had to fall
upon his knees to see her face. Could hei
have seen it he could not have failed to no-,
tice how flushed she was, and what a look.
of fear and shame was in her eyes.
"Who was the lady," she asked, " ahosoa
voice so rescmLlcd miner
"A Miss Churchill," said tregarthen. "A
delightful actress. The most charming
actress I ever saw." It seemed necessary
to make as much as might reasonably be
msde of Miss Churchill's perfections to ex
cuse any comparison, however trivial, bo
tween her and the woman of his heart, who
not only was not an actress and was a gen
tlewoman, but was also, and of course, be
yond comparison with anybody. " I saw
her play Hosalind," he hurried on, " and
since the first words I heard you eak were)
the first words I heard her speak, the re
semblance of the voices was accidentally
"Did you wish very much to see Miss
Churchill " asked the young lady. " Were
you vory much interested in her."
"Not at all," cried Tregartlian eagerly.
"I had forgotten her--until I heard tho
" Were you disappointed whon you found
that it was only iiwr"
"Only you I" said, the lover, and would
not condescend to add to that simple but
sufficient disclaimer, except by possessing
himself first of her hand and then of her
waist. For a whilo she bent her head and
refused to allow him to steal the merest
glance ot her face, but by-and-by she turned
upon him gently and gazed full in his eyes
for a moment, while her figure yielded it
self more freely to his embrace, and no
longer repulsed him by its rigidity.
"If had turned out to be Miss Church
ill," she asked him, "should you" She
paust d, but the very silenco was eloquent.
"Have loved you?" said Tregarthen.
" No. I could not have fallen in love with
an actress." It seemed to him that there
might be a touch of jealousy in the appeal,
and he was in the mood to be tender to all
love's fancies, however shadowy and unreal
they might be.
"Why not!" she asked. "There are
many good women who aro actresses,
" ?io doubt," he answered, lightly.
"Many, liut you rub the bloom from tho
peach if you handle it ever so gently. An
actress gains something more than most
women hope for or care for, but she must
be content to lose something a delicacy, a
fiiirnnss which is not easy to describe, but
means much to a man with any refinement
He was far from being actually dishonest
in saying this, and yet he was not precisely
honest. Left to himself and his own judg
ment he would not have thought theso
thoughts at all, but the fancy that bis lie
trothed had that visionary jealousy of the
actress moved him to make the jealousy im
possible. " But if you had met her, and had fallen
in love with her," said the girl, " and had
then found that she was an actress that
would have made no difference to you!"
" Yes," he said, gravely, and as if con
sidering the matter, "a serious difference."
" I fancied men thought differently," she
said, with some little heat of scorn. "I
fancied that they did not altogether care
so much for those of us who live along in
the one little groove of household cares and
small accomplishments, and silly joys and
"I shall ask you to achieve no out-of-
doors greatness," Tregarthen answered,
fondly; "though you aro more fit to shino
in the world's eye than any other woman
now alive." The young man was not a fino
judge of verse, and it was natural to think
the Laureate's outpourings inferior to those
of tho woman he himself was in love with.
" Be as great as you will, but shine at homo,
my near, and let me worship you."
That was a pretty programme, and the
girl found no fault with it as it applied to
her own prospects. But she bad rather
how much rather that her future husband
should have thought better of Miss Church'
ill's profession. It was clear that ho sus
pected nothing, imagined nothing, but it
was a pain to have a secret, though It were
as harmless as her own. For Miss Church-
in, tnougn an actress, was as pure as a
daisy, and nobody knew better than Miss
Fanner how little evil the stage had taught
her, though there are millions who know in
finitely bettor how much evil it has the
power to teach.
One unavoidable result came out of this
conversation. Miss Fanner buried Miss
Churchill, and resolved that the actress
should know no resurrection. - liut then (as
l iple unfairly or secretly entombed with
fears and suspicions hanging around them
have a prescriptive right to do) Miss
Churchill assumed ghost-like airs and re-
-vwiwo. the upper world and peopled the sox-
ton s life with unroal terrors. Tregarthen
uaa taught the girl to love him. She had

! The courtship went on, and Gorbay and
the county beyond the limits of Gorbay
discussed it, and the whole were content
with it Tregarthen might have looked
higher in spite of those regimental escapades
of his, for the last scion of one of the oldest
houses in that part of England, where
houses are so amazingly old, might think
himself almost any man's equal. He was
was not a millionaire, but he had enough,
and was unusually personable. Everybody
was persuaded that the match, from Miss
Farmer's point of view, was all that could
Within nine months of their first speech
with eaoh other the pair became man and
wife, and set up housekeeping in Oorbay.
They had an exquisitely appointed houso,
standing in the midst of some eight acres of
well-timbered ground and surrounded by
trim gardens. While they lived here the
old mansion on Tregarthen Island was to
be restored to something of its former gran
deur, and Mrs. Tregarthen insisted upon
having a hand in this. She insisted on
having so influential a hand in it that she
placed the whole of her own modest fortune
in her husband's hands and bade him make
"You bring me the grandeur of an old
name," she said, " and I claim to have my
share In its honors. U you refuse me this
I only half divide them."
Tregarthen, after many affectionate dis
rates, took the money.
' "Whatever is mine is yours," he said,
fr'And whatever is yours is mine. It is like
the right hand giving to the left"
' Precisely," said his wife, well pleased,
and the architect was busy at once. By
the beginning of July the builders were at
work, and the young couple had great joy
In crossing from Gorbay Head to Tregar
Ehsn, and watching the slow growth of the
Eld place to a new being. Tregarthen's
fcunds were snugly invested, and there were
Ample means to keep the reglorified house
in a reasonable state. Meantimo, in other
matters they were content to retrench, and
Mrs. TiLjaiihen wrote industriously at a
romance on a large scale, determined not
to cost her husband a penny in dresses, and
to win an anonymous fame, of which he, ,
who alone should have the secret, should be
as proud as she was of him.
Visitors came thickly to Tregarthen that
summer, some, who had archa?ological
tastes from afar, bent on seeing the house
once before it assumed its new form. It
was no matter of surprise, therefore, when
a couple of sturdy boatmen pulled over a
party of ladies and gentlemen, with a fat
and spectacled savant at their head, and
the fat and spectacled one began to wander
about among the stones and the mortar,
delivering a little lecture to his followers
as he went. The married pair were in the
habitable part of tho house, and at the mo
ment when the boat grounded at the Sea
gate Mrs. Tregarthen was receiving a con
fession from her husband. He was stand
ing at the window from which he had
watched her on her first visit to the island,
and was telling her, with no shamefaced
ness, how he had kept her in sight after he
parted from her. It was not from any
standpoint but her own a deed to be re
warded, bnt she kissed him for it with all
her heart, and they went gayly out together
for a ramble on the cliffs. Before they
started, Tregarthen took a look at the ap
proaching party through the single-barreled
" We can go out with a clear conscience,
my dear," he said ; " there is no one we
know among them."
They had not left the house long when an
architect's clerk came racing after them,
and asked Tregarthen's presence. The ar
chitect himself was on the ground, and de
sired his opinion on some question or an
other which could only be decided on the
" Walk on," said Tregarthen to his wife
"I shall overtake you."
She answered with a smile and a nod, and
rambled slowly over the verdurous slopes,

while sho looked back, and, seeing no sign
of her husband, she sat in the shelter of an
; overhanging bowlder, and, sinking down in
the soft mosses, surrenderee nerseu to
J happy broodiiigs upon her husband, her
. home, his love and her own, ana tne cioua-
less sky that overhung their sweet domestic
life. She was so deep sunk in reverie, and
the mosses hereabout were so soft and thick
that a wandering footstep near at hand
failed to reach her ear, and she was a little
startled to find a picturesque young man
baring his head before her with an almost
theatrical air of homage.
'Miss Churchill!" said the picturesque
young man, in accents of delighted surprise.
I was assured the world was not rouwxioi
you, but 1 am amazed to una you nero;
amazed and charmed."
She did not recognize him, and arose with
some indignation at the familiarity of his
tone. She was startled by his sudden com
ing, too, and at the first flash she saw danger
in the presence of any man who had known
"I am Mrs. Tregarthen, sir," sho said,
haughtily and coldly.
"I beg pardon," said the picturesque
young man, still standing bat in nana be
fore her. " I cannot be mistaken. I had
the honor to meet you at ' The Mirror.'
My nameis Marsh Konald Marsh. lowed
the pleasure to Mr. Lorrimar."
"I have no recollection of the circum

Mr. Ronald Marsh smiled with no touch
of embarrassment It was a little odd that
there were people in'the world who did not
leap at the chance of talking to him, but
the fact was indisputable, and he was used
" I beg your pardon again," be said, with
a graceful wave of his tombrtro. "At least
I may have the gratification of being assured
that I am not in error in assuming you to
be Miss Churchill."
Training tells in all things, and there was
a little ring of the stage in her lovely voice
as she answered him:
"I was Miss Churchill, sir; but I have
no desire to resume acquaintance with any.
Ierson who knew me by that name."
Mr. Ronald Marsh flushed to the roots of
his hair, and donned his tombrero with a
final bow. She moved past him with flash
ing eyes and head erect, and, sweeping thus
round the edge of the great bowlder, met
Tregarthen face to face.

Apropos of Grace Greenwood, I have ju-t
finished reading her very char mi ug "Lifo of
Queen Victoria." It is a most inUi-ostiu
volume, and I heartily concur with ber in her
enthusiastic praises of Prince Altert. Till
his eldest son grew up wo scnroely realiz.td
what a paragun tho prince consort ically ww
a young and hand ionie nun, seated bos:iU)
ono of tho greatest thrones of 12u.o;o, a
prince out of a f:iiry til for bcuuty an I
personal fascination, yet blameless and noble
in his daily life an a virtuoiu woman. Ah,
there are no such princes nowadays!
The only real error of his life as the queen'
husband a his adherence to tho strict rulM
of the stiff court etiquette of Germany, and
which be persuaded her to maintain a f.ict
that accounts in purt for tho intense uu;xpu
laritythatwosotouo time his undeserved p r
tion. He carried his int-nsd pride of position so
far as never to cotiseut to receive any article
from tho hands of a servant Even wlien ho
was out shooting he would not take his nun
from one of the game-keepers; it had to bo
transmitted to him through the meiiu:nof
his gentlemen in waiting. His wife fully im
bibed all his ideas and followed bis examolj.
Once, w hen Queen Victoria was on a visit to
King Loum 1'hillippe, she expressed a desire
one evening, immediately before retiring to
rest, for a Kla of water. It was brought to
her on a golden salvor by one of the roy.il
valets. The queen refused to take the water,
motioning its bearer from her with an
imperious gesture. Louis Phillippe noticed
tho action, and perfectly comprehended its
puqxjrL lie signed to one of his sons to olf er
the salver to her mnjosty. This was done,
and tho queen then condescended to accept
the desired draught
I think, too, that Queen Victoria tas been
much to blame in tho stand which she has
taken in regard to the marriages of the mem
bers of the collateral branches of the royal
family. It is a well-known fact she forced
the poor Princes Mary of Cambridge to give
up tho man she sincerely loved and who
loved her, an English nobleman, and likewise
compelled her to give her hand to the duke of
Teck. More then once has the queen been
compelled to Intervene in the conjugal affairs
of this ill-assort! pair. And in more than
ono instance sho has refused to receive at
court German princes who have married
English ladies of rank, because she did not
approve of the gentlemen inairyiug beneath
their station, thus taking sides with her
birthright against her own countrywomen.
But the most unprincely of Queen Victoria's
defects is her meanness. She is economical to
a degree that would bo praiseworthy in a
washerwoman earning 7 shillings a week, but
which is highly reprehensible in a sovereign
receiving large revenues from the nation.
That she should not care for dress is all well
enough, but surely tho queen of England
ought not to appear in public in soiled and
shabby clothes, and that she does continually.
Her invariable wedding gift to any young
lady member of tho British aristocracy en
titled to receive a present on ber wedding
from those august hands, is an India shawl.
The reason for this invariable selection is said
to bo the fact that a rtion of the tribute
paid annually by the native princes ot India
to their supreme sovereign, the empress, al
ways consists of a number of fine shawls, and
so she need not disburse a penny when mak
ing her wedding present And the injury
that she has done to the commerce and
tradespeople of London in her aelllsh se
clusion during all these years is simply in
calculable. Granted that she mourned for
ber lost husband (and doubtless she did, poor
wife I) with all the passionate abandonment
due to such love and such a loss. But a
nobler mind would have recognized a higher
duty in the claims of her people, aud when
the formal period of mourning was over,
would have comprehended the worth of self
abnegation on such a matter.
And the poor Princess Beatrice surely
never did a princess, young, sprightly and In
telligent, lead such a doleful existence outside
of the enchanted tower of fairy tale. Not
for ber are the splendors of a court ball, or
the charms of a box at the opera, or even the
luxury of a drive in the park In the height of
the London season. She is kept closely
chained to the side of her imperious, selfish
mother, fulfilling the duties of a paid com
panion, with nover a holiday, except, indeed,
when she caught tho rheumatism lately, and
bad to go to Aix-les-Bains by order of her
physicians. And I am told that tho poor
princess' malady was caused by the strict en
forcement by the queen of full dress daily at
their furnily dinner. That constant wearing
of a decollete corsage in all kinds of weather
proved too much for the health of her un
lucky daughter. And from the queeu's dic
tum no appeal is possible. 8 ho tyrannizes
over everybody about her, with the solo ex
ception of the duchess of Ediuburg. Tbc
haughty Russian princess once turned upon
her with the sharp remark, apropos of some
question of precedence, "Madam, you forget
that my fathor was an emperor, while yours
was not even a king."
Now, I do not wish to decry Mrs. Lip
plncott's most charming volume, or to give
the impression that I do not comprehend and
appreciate the many high qualities ot Queen
Victoria. But I have been too much in Eng
land, and have heard too much about ber to
exactly look upon her as "a thing ensk'y'd
ensainted." She has defects which are in
tolerable in private still more in that of a
queen and that have told, and are still toll
ing cruelly on hor family and her immediate
surroundings. And any prosjierous American
girl may thank hor stars that Quoen Victoria
is neither her mother, her guardian, or her

8t. Louis, Mo , July 27, 1883. In lifting
a small casting in my office 1 sprained my
back, from which I suffered the most ex
crutiating pains, and could not rest in any
position; after using several well known
remodics without effect, Merrel's Penetra
ting Oil was recommended to me, and I
tried it. One application relieved me in
about five minutes, and in two days was en
tirely cured and have had no trouble since.
It is a Liniment ot great value.
